Well I Am $90 Poorer
The University of Nebraska and FSN announced Friday that the Huskers’ first three football games of the 2008 season will be telecast via pay-per-view on participating cable systems and nationwide to satellite dish customers. The games included in the announcement are home games against Western Michigan (Aug. 30), San Jose State (Sept. 6) and New Mexico State (Sept. 13).
Kickoff times for the first two contests have also been determined with the debut of the 2008 Huskers against Western Michigan set for a 6 p.m. CT kickoff from Memorial Stadium. A week later, Nebraska and San Jose State will meet in an 11:30 a.m. CT game. The kickoff time for the Sept. 13 matchup with New Mexico State will be determined no later than 12 days in advance of the contest.
“We wanted to announce our plans for these first three games as early as possible so our fans can start making plans for the beginning of the season,” Nebraska Athletic Director Tom Osborne said. “There is a lot of excitement around the state to see our team get going with Bo as head coach and the pay-per-view option gives fans that can’t be at Memorial Stadium the opportunity to watch the first three games.”
